No Bake Nutella, Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Pie

Now that I am such a Nutella lover it’s hard to believe I ever didn’t know what it was.

I was introduced to it by a coworker a few years back and though it’s delicious on toast, it’s even better when made into a sandwich with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. This pie is not the first time my love of nuteller fluffernutter sandwiches has manifested itself into a tasty treat. I made these cookie cups a while back.

But this pie is even more indulgent and even easier to make. And it’s no-bake!

Nutella, Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Pie

I made it to take to work one day. One of my coworkers (at a different job) had never had Nutella and given the fact that I was enlightened at work I figured it was my duty to do the same for him.

There are so many awesome ways to bake Nutella into treats it made it nearly impossible to decide what to make. I really wanted the Nutella flavor to be center stage, but I also wanted a great flavor combo.

After giving it a lot of thought (most things I create begin this way – I want it to be perfect!) and seeing this pie by Dorothy from Crazy for Crust and how simple the pie filling was to make and how common the ingredients are (2 of my favorite criteria!) I knew a pie was the way to go. And a fluffernutter combo just seemed obvious.

The result is AMAZING!

Nutella, Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Pie

My coworkers found it kind of unassuming upon first glance. Obviously they weren’t looking at it through my eyes. :) But once they tasted it they were all sold! Not just on Nutella, but on this pie.

The Nutella and peanut butter are the standouts and the marshmallow fluff is the perfect compliment. It all just melts in your mouth with this crazy awesome mix of some of my favorite flavors. The crust retains a bit of structure and is a nice contrast to the soft Nutella filling.

And as I said before, it’s so easy to make. The whole thing is no-bake. No oven – I love that!

The pie crust is made with graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, butter and a microwave. Simple and easy.

The Nutella filling is made on the stove, but doesn’t take long. You basically combine everything, boil it and pour it into the crust. The hardest part is waiting for it to set in the refrigerator.

The topping is marshmallow fluff. Again – easy. Some people aren’t fans of fluff, so feel free to use actual marshmallows and either leave them as they are or toast them on top.

Nutella,

One thing I will tell you about, which I learned while eating the pie, is that after I microwaved the fluff a bit so that I could pour it onto the pie, it never completely firmed back up. I don’t know what the reason for that is and it certainly didn’t bother me at all, but it’s worth mentioning. The reason being after you begin to slice it, if it sits for a while, the fluff starts to kind of melt into the open part of the pie pan – even if you put it back in the refrigerator. There’s still some on the pie, and you can certainly just scoop the fluff back on when ready to eat it, but if you’re worried about presentation you may want to go with toasted marshmallows.

Either way, this thing is moan inducing and addicting. You really have to try it. Seriously. Do it now.

Nutella, Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Pie

Yield: one 9-inch pie

Ingredients

Crust
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup peanut butter


Filling
2 cups milk
2 tbsp + 2 tsp cornstarch
3/4 cup Nutella
1/2 tsp vanilla extract, optional
2 cups marshmallow fluff

Instructions

1. Add butter and peanut butter together in a small bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds, or until the butter in melted. Mix well.
2. Add butter mixture to graham cracker crumbs and mix until combined.
3. Press graham cracker mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9 inch pie pan to complete crust and set aside.
4. Whisk the cornstarch and 1/4 cup milk together in a small bowl. Set aside.
5. Add Nutella, remaining milk (1 3/4 cup), and vanilla extract to a pan and whisk over medium heat until the Nutella is melted.
6. Add the cornstarch mixture to the Nutella mixture.
7. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula. It will begin to thicken.
8. Once boiling, stir continuously for about 2 minutes, until fully thickened.
9. Pour mixture into crust and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
10. When Nutella mixture is set, put 2 cups of marshmallow fluff into a small bowl and microwave for about 30-45 seconds, or until easily pourable.
11. Pour marshmallow fluff over the top of the Nutella mixture. It will naturally spread to cover the pie. (If you'd prefer, you can toast mini marshmallows on top)
12. Drizzle Nutella onto the top of the pie and sprinkle with a few graham crackers crumbs if desired.
13. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

  1. I am totally fine with a banana and a spoonful of Nutella for breakfast. Sounds like I need to make this pie!

  2. Elizabeth @ SugarHero.com says:

    You had me at “Nutella,” but then you had to go add peanut butter, marshmallow, and no-bake along with it! This pie is a total winner!

  3. Not only does it look delicious, I LOVE that it is no-bake! It’s been way too hot to bake anything lately but this would be perfect!

  4. So good! All of my favorites in one pie. Nutella anything – I know I’d love it! And I love that there’s no baking involved!

  5. Aimee @ ShugarySweets says:

    Oh my word, I want a slice!

  6. No bake desserts are the best in the summer! This pie looks like something I will be making summer and winter! The only change I will have to make is subbing chocolate peanut butter for the nutella (tree nut allergies). It is not as sweet as nutella but I think there is enough sweet from the other ingredients here to make up for it. Thanks for a yummy recipe!

  7. Wow, yum! I love how easy this looks and that it’s no bake.

  8. I heart nutella, so I just know I’d be head over heels for this pie!! YUMMY!!

  9. Wow, this pie looks amazing!I love the combination of the nutella, peanut butter, and marshmallow! Thanks for sharing at Showcase Your Talent Thursday. I am pinning this and will be sharing it on Facebook!

  10. This looks absolutely delicious!!

  11. This looks so yummy! Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites. I’m featuring you this week!

  12. Yum! This sounds delicious, I am a lover of nutella too. Could just sit and eat it with a spoon, but I don’t of course because that sooo bad. Right?! :) Anywho, wanted to stop by and see what all the fuss was about, you were featured at simply sweet home and 30handmadedays… congrats. Great blog and recipe! :)

  13. Oh my heck. Nutella, peanut butter AND marshmallow…all in a pie?!!! Count me IN!! This sounds so fabulous – I need to make it this weekend! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

  14. I think I just died- yum!!!

  15. This looks amazing!! Just subscribed to your site. Your recipes all look so tempting!

  16. I have never tried Nutella but wondered why you had to put it on the stove instead of using the microwave to melt it.
    I would rather use the microwave during the summer when it is just too hot to use the either the stove or burners on the stove!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Hi Becky! In this particular case I’m not just melting the Nutella. It actually comes to a boil with the other ingredients, which helps to thicken the mixture so that it holds shape as a pie. While melting works well in a microwave, controlling temperature to bring to a boil without over-cooking it in a microwave is harder to do. At least there’s no need for the oven! :)

  17. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! Do you think homemade marshmallow would work? At the point before setting it’s like fluff..so maybe it would give more of the texture your looking for? I must try this for research purposes! :D Will report back when I’m done….oh boy!

    • Oh and if you have an asian/european/ethnic market near you..you may be able to find Nutella in the glass jar (taste better too)..that way melting is easier.

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Mmm, I don’t know if it would work, but sounds like it. I’ve never made my own marshmallows. I’d love to know how it turns out!

      • I use Alton Brown’s recipe to start with..definitely try it sometime!!..then play with the flavors- so far Bailey’s is a favorite among friends. You’ll never go back to bag/jar! If you do..drape a towel over your mixer while it’s running for the 12 minutes..it will keep the heat in an allow it to be spreadable easy. Otherwise you have to work really quick.
        As far as the Nutella- overseas (Italy) it’s in a jar and when I came to the states I was disappointed with the flavor. I have gotten used to it and am addicted again, but when I find the glass or hubby deploys and brings me home 4 jars (true story) it’s a treat! In Paris you’ll see the crepe makers on the street with the jar right on the heating disk..it’s so silky smooth and warm. MMmmm must get spoonful now.

        • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

          Mmmm, oh my gosh, warm Nutella in Paris? Sign me up!! I’ll definitely have to try that recipe – thanks Sheila!

  18. Get in mah bellay!
